Viking Age 2013 Mock Draft Edition 1

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

It’s our first mock draft of the 2013 offseason. Let’s roll this thing out.

1. Kansas City Chiefs – Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia

I don’t think there’s anyone out there who believes Geno Smith is Andrew Luck or RG3 or Russell Wilson. But he’s a quarterback and it’s a quarterback league. And we know how god-awful the Chiefs are at quarterback. Or just generally.

2. Jacksonville JaguarsMike Glennon, QB, N.C. State

QB league. Jacksonville has dog poop back there. Glennon is the rising QB prospect along with Ryan Nassib of Syracuse.

3. Oakland Raiders – Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah

Big, huge potentially dominating interior lineman. Can always use one of those.

4. Philadelphia Eagles – Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M

Will go from blocking for Johnny Football to blocking for goodness only knows. Probably Nick Foles.

5. Detroit Lions – Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State

It’s all about the front four for Detroit. If I were them I would draft nothing but defense.

6. Cleveland Browns – Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M

Best pass rusher in the draft? Possibly

7. Arizona Cardinals – Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan

They need lots of offensive linemen. Lots.

8. Buffalo Bills – Matt Barkley, QB, USC

QB league. Buffalo obviously wants to move on from Ryan Fitzpatrick. They will fool themselves into thinking Barkley can be the man.

9. New York JetsJarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia

Defense is their identity and their defense sucked last year.

10. Tennessee Titans – Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama

Has to be an Alabama guy in the top 10 somewhere. So much talent on that team.

11. San Diego Chargers – Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma

No more Norv. We’ll see how it turns out for them.

12. Miami Dolphins – Keenan Allen, WR, Cal

The young QB looks pretty good, now get him somebody to throw the ball to.

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama

The new Peanut Tillman if you believe the scouts. Fits that defense.

14. Carolina Panthers – Jonathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State

They could use some more impact players on defense.

15. New Orleans Saints – Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU

He won’t have far to move his stuff.

    A DT in the first means a few things. First, we must have signed a WR in Free agency and/or resigned percy harvin. I personally think theres no way harvin leaves. My favorite scenario involves resigning him, signing wallace, bowe, jennings, or welker. Then draft a DT as you predicted and take a WR in the 2nd

    @Alex that’s unlikely to happen. Spielman doesn’t target big name free agents. He targets high upside second tier players. I fully expect them to go BPA. In most mocks I’ve seen, its either Keenan Allen or Jonathan Hankins in the first. Personally, I’d rather see Hankins selected because IMO there isn’t a single first round receiver in this draft. I’d wait til the second and select somebody like Robert Woods or DeAndre Hopkins. Also, the kid out of Texas A&M looks like the real deal as a shifty Wes Welker type of receiver in the later rounds. Would also be a great addition to the Vikes even though he’s under 6′.

  • Richard Krueger

    It’s doubtful that the Rams wouldn’t draft at least one offensive lineman in the first round.
